MDC-T leader Prime Minister Morgan Tsvangirai yesterday cast his ballot at Mt Pleasant High School in Harare where he said he was confident he would beat his arch-rival Zanu PF’s President Robert Mugabe to become the next President of Zimbabwe.

Tsvangirai, who was accompanied by his wife Elizabeth Macheka, said he had a lot of “unfinished” government business which he wanted to complete “when” re-elected.
“It’s not a matter of if, but when,” Tsvangirai said. “I will win quite resoundingly I must say. Today is a special day for Zimbabweans to complete the delayed run-off from 2008.”
On what was going on in his mind as he cast his vote, Tsvangirai said: “It’s quite an emotional moment when you see all the people, after all the stalemate, the suspicion and hostility, there is a sense of calmness and that Zimbabwe will be able to move on again.
“The voters’ roll issue has not been resolved. We hope it’s not going to be the big impediment. It raises credibility questions.”
